Veterans Awareness Month with Special Exhibit: A Time to Heal

At MiraCosta College: November 6 - December 14, 2017
Lecture: Thursday, November 9, 2017, 4-6pm; Reception 6-7:30pm

A Time to Heal is a performative, socially engaging, fine art project whose mission is to provide a safe space for our war veterans to reflect and share their stories with the community as they work with a team of artists in developing mixed media self portraits. Our hope is that we, as a community, can be proactive in our personal and collective healing and support each other during the process by stimulating dialogues of healing and humanity through creativity. A Time to Heal features works made with collaborative efforts by Trinh Mai, J.Grant Brittain, and service members of MiraCosta College, Rachel Davis, Michelle Vesley, Christopher Weathers, and John Wayne.
